Procrastination does pay....

Sometimes it DOES pay to procrastinate....well, sort of...LOL

Since daylight savings time was over last fall, I must have looked at the clock in the car a MILLION times and thought....I really should change the time to the regular time. The kids ask me all the time..."Is that the real time Mom?"...NOOOOOO, that is last daylight savings time, and unfortunately we were not on daylight savings time.

Changing the time would have involved fishing out the owners manual and finding the section that explains the magic combo of buttons to change the time. Well, I almost changed the time last weekend, then I was listening to the news and they said DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME IS COMING THIS WEEKEND!

THANK HEAVENS I DID NOT CAVE AND CHANGE THE TIME, otherwise I probably would have spent the whole summer with the correct WINTER time on my car clock, LOL. Surely I would not have remembered from one day to the next how to change the time.


Last summer I took the Susan Garrett 5 min Formula for a Brilliant Recall course, and really felt like I got a lot out of it, and when I heard she was going to repeat it, I was going to go ahead and pay to take it again.....but SG posted that she was having a contest, and if you had taken the course last time, you could post a video about the course and everyone who posted a video would get a free recallers course. Five people will win a free tuition to the next course she is going to do on something else yet to be announced.

ANYWAY, this is my submission. There are some really cute videos that have been posted by others so it was almost a little intimidating to post a video to facebook. This ended up longer then I had wanted, but I did not want to edit baby Cricket doing her recall out, LOL. What a great marketer SG is, getting her name out there and getting people to advertise!

and if that link does not work, this is the vimeo link for the same video ;-)

OMG the clock thing would drive me crazy. There is no way I couldnt have fixed it. I go to my mom's house and they have lots of clocks on things and I go around fixing them all. LOL

I couldnt watch the video, it was blocked.

Kathy said...

SEE you need to come and visit after time changes so you can fix my clocks! It really is irritating to be subtracting or adding an hour all the time, and remembering which to do, LOL, but not irritating enough that I make it a priority to get it done, I need a friend like you to help ;-)

I wouldn't have been able to stand not having the clock say the right time either!

I want to see your recall video but YouTube seems to be blocking it!

Kathy said...

That is just so bizarre, the video looks fine for me, and youtube has not notified me of problems, but they are up to some shananigans apparently, so I will just have to upload it to vimeo instead and repost it!

Sara said...

I think you should go into advertising!

Really, I think SG should put you on her payroll.

LauraK said...

What a great video! I really wanted to take that course when she first advertised it, but I didn't have the money at the time. Maybe I'll have to look into it again, because it looks like you definitely got a lot out of it! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy said...

Thanks Sara and Laura, and Sara I like the way you think I wouldnt object to being on her payroll, LOL!

I didn't know anything about the daylight saying time at all until one year when I was in Germany and that day, I was wondering why the time of my watch was completely different from all the clocks that I saw that day. How ignorant I was, LOL!!!
Enjoy the spring!pro

Dawn said...

LOL....I agree, I go for MONTHS with the wrong time on the clock in my car, but I KNOW WHAT TIME IT REALLY IS...and then some day my husband will change it but not tell me and then I"M ALL CONFUSED for a few days! :)

COuldn't watch the video either...but hope you win the free tuition!!

Dawn said...

ps: but I can see the video! Looks fun!!

Sagira said...

You are already ahead of the game and have your clock ready to go then.

Tried to watch the video but says it is blocked in my country? :(

Nicki said...

I've been known to let me car clock be wrong for 6 months too. One of my previous vehicles was not simple to change and I was always too lazy to look up how to do it.

Epicurus said...

That was a great video Kathy!! I think you will win:)

Marie said...

Wow, I don't think you should have any hesitation about posting that video on Youtube, it was awesome! Very cool that you get to take the course again for free.

Ricky the Sheltie said...

I really enjoyed your recallers video! Look at puppy Cricket! So cute and with such a happy recall! 5 minutes a day well spent! Glad you can take the course again for free!
